From the BCA concert description:
Over the past decade, the New Jersey-born vocalist/writer/musician/producer (now dividing her time between New Orleans and the mountains of Vermont) has been bestowed with many awards and praises, including being named the Female Songwriter of the Year by the National Academy of Songwriters. Dayna was recently nominated as 2017 New Orleans Songwriter of the Year in the Offbeat Magazine poll. Norah Jones and Bonnie Raitt have raved about her in interviews, and she's performed on such high-profile radio shows as World Cafe, Mountain Stage, NPR's Morning Edition, and Tell Me More. She's toured and opened for the likes of Elvis Costello, Richard Thompson, Mavis Staples, Rufus Wainwright, B.B. King, Dr. John, Richie Havens, Madeleine Peyroux, Chris Whitley, and the Blind Boys of Alabama. Festivals that have asked Dayna to perform are the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, the French Quarter Festival, Celebrate Brooklyn, Lincoln Center Out of Doors and Roots on the Rails.
